The Bridge At Remagen DVD

| DVD

Fine casting, rugged characters and authentic military detail make The Bridge at Remagen one of the best World War II action films of the 1960s. Based on actual incidents during the final Allied advance on Germany in March 1945, the story focuses on the US Army's exhausted 27th Armoured Infantry, assigned to seize the bridge at Remagen, on the Rhine river, to prevent 50,000 German troops from retreating to safety. Lt Hartman (George Segal) leads the mission, while a Nazi major (Robert Vaughn) defies orders by attempting to hold the bridge instead of blowing it up.... With strong emphasis on war's harsher realities, the film's compelling characters illustrate the camaraderie of survivors and the heroism of mavericks in the thick of battle. Segal and Ben Gazzara effectively convey a hard-won friendship, and the film's dynamic action (filmed in Czechoslovakia and Italy) never overwhelms the story's emotional impact. This is highly recommended. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com [show more]

John Guillermin directs this adaptation of the book by K. Hechler. In March 1945 the war in Europe is coming to an end. German troops, led by Major Kreuger (Robert Vaughn), are ordered to blow up the only bridge left leading into the Rhineland to prevent entry by the Allies. Meanwhile, American Lieutenant Hartman (George Segal) and his platoon close in on the bridge, hoping to put a swift end to the bloody combat.
